Curious news regarding Florida East Coast Realty's property next to The Mardi Gras Casino proves -yet again- the prescience of Hallandale Beach & Broward County civic activist Csaba "Chuck" Kulin

Some curious development news regarding Florida East Coast Realty proves -yet again- the common sense and prescience of Hallandale Beach and Broward County civic activist Csaba Kulin

As my friend and fellow Hallandale Beach & Broward civic activist Csaba "Chuck" Kulin astutely said at the time when Florida East Coast Realty (FECR) demanded a sweetheart deal from City Manager Renee C. Miller on the huge fines they owed at a HB CRA meeting in March 2013, despite their NOT having done everything they were required to do first, as other HB businesses would have to do, FECR completely played Hallandale Beach City Hall officials and our City Commission for rubes.

They did so by selling Miller, Mayor Joy Cooper and the City Commission -but NOT the bewildered and concerned residents in the Commission Chambers- on the patently ridiculous idea that they would actually do something positive for both themselves and the community with this property located south of the eastern entrance to the Mardi Gras Casino -formerly the Hollywood Dog Trackwhere a series of produce markets have been located over the past few years, and just opposite Atlantic Shores Blvd.

This Google Maps Street View photo below is from July 2014 and looks southward at the eastern U.S.-1 entrance to The Mardi Gras Casino, where FECR's property is opposite their sign, on the south side. 




My first post about this bad deal for Hallandale Beach taxpayers and lovers of common sense:

February 8, 2013

Friday begins a very bumpy couple of weeks for real estate developer Jerome Hollo and his plan to NOT pay Hallandale Beach taxpayers the $450,000 that Florida East Coast Realty owes them. And a storm is coming...


Do you recall the vague nonsense they spouted about a "New Orleans-styled" hotel they said they'd build there, which, quite curiously, had the same exact specs as a hotel once previously proposed in the city? 
Csaba saw right through it and said as much to me sitting next to me in the Commission Chambers when it happened.
Then he said that and more when he spoke during public comments against giving them a sweetheart deal.

I can't recall whether I spoke against it before or after Csaba, but I asked the city to produce proof that FECR had met city's requirements. The first thing you'd expect they'd have produced, right. 
To nobody's surprise, HB City Hall bureaucrats could NOT produce any tangible proof -got angry that I even asked!- even while I had photos on me (which I didn't use) that showed FECR hadn't fulfilled the requirements more than three months after-the-fact.

So much for any lingering expectations of anyone in the room or watching on TV who thought that HB City Hall still clung to any notions of at least trying to appear to be fair and even-handed in its treatment of businesses in HB.

I should mention that this news about the FECR "plan" completely shocked Dan Atkins and the execs at Mardi Gras, who were VERY UPSET about being blindsided and first finding-out about "the plan" after-the-fact, instead of via one of their many pals at HB City Hall who like to whisper sweet nothings into their ears.

And now, as if we needed a big exclamation point to the whole sorry episode, we now see the proof, via the always-reliable Brian Bandell and his article on this subject Friday at the South Florida Business Journal that Csaba was right all along.

As if some of us didn't know that more than two years ago!

Thoughts on the continuing Burnadette Norris-Weeks ethics problem in Broward County: Thru her actions, attitude and behavior, Broward SOE attorney Norris-Weeks has come to personify the worst unethical excesses of Broward County's pay-to-play culture and the insider's sense of entitlement that pro-reform pols and citizens have fought hard to eliminate.

Thoughts on the continuing Burnadette Norris-Weeks ethics problem in Broward County: Thru her actions, attitude and behavior, Broward SOE attorney Norris-Weeks has come to personify the worst unethical excesses of Broward County's pay-to-play culture and the insider's sense of entitlement that pro-reform pols and citizens have fought hard to eliminate.

Since last Spring when I took advantage of the Ultra Music Festival being downtown to also take some photos for the last time of what was then left of the partially-destroyed Miami Herald building from directly in front of One Herald Plaza -a building overlooking Biscayne Bay that I had been in dozens and dozens of times from the 1970's thru the mid-'90's when visiting The Miami News, but which by this time was also missing some of the letters from its iconic sign- I've been meaning to write something about what I have long sensed is the real lack of backbone and community engagement and push back among many of Broward County's current and in some case well-known civic groups and their leadership that, in the abstract, ought to be doing MUCH MORE publicly to lead the fight to make Broward's future better for everyone.
Not least, among those in civil society who actually follow the letter and spirit of the law, especially ethics laws meant to provide transparency to the public and inspire trust in institutions by them.

Push back by actually taking people to task by putting their feet to the fire and publicly embarrassing them or shaming them when their unchecked egos, ambition and sense of entitlement to go off the charts the way that Burnadette Norris-Weeks has clearly done the past few years, given that in the current environment, with our present collection of sleepwalking news reporters, she has absolutely no fear that the South Florida news media would ever hold a mirror or TV camera up to her, and show it to the public to inform them and educate them about her behind-the-scenes dealings.

As would happen in most though not all parts of the U.S. -or at least used to.

So, to better understand this vexing issue involving one Broward insider's ego and over-the-top sense of entitlement, I've posted this collection of information in reverse chron order, most recent at top.

I remind many of you, especially you newcomers to the blog, that for many months, I was often the only Broward citizen present at those early morning meetings of the Broward County Ethics Commission meetings at Broward County Govt HQ, which I dutifuly videotaped and took notes on to be entirely accurate, in-between sips of McDonald's coffee.

Week-after-week, month-after-month, I saw who was and who was NOT trying their best to fullfill the hopes of Broward's long-frustrated citizens on the issue of finally getting the much-needed, stronger ethical rules for Broward elected officials and employees and the people they interact with. I saw who was and who was NOT making the honest effort to change the unacceptable status quo that then-existed and markedly improving it in both letter and spirit.

So with that in mind, I can tell you that Burnadette Norris-Weeks was NOT a Profile in Courage 
then and she was NOT years later when serving on the appointed Broward County Charter Commission, where she had the rare opportunity to serve the long-term best interests of Broward citizens, businesses AND incorporate notions of Good Government Best Practices.

But instead of doing that, Norris-Weeks voted AGAINST Broward citizens like you and me from even being able to vote at the polls that November, and to decide the outcome of the issue of a countywide-elected mayor for Broward County, as the public would be able to do in 99% of America.

But NOT here in Broward County, and Burnadette Norris-Weeks was one of the small handful of people who voted AGAINST you and I even being able to vote for or against it, much less, voting and deciding it one way or the other.

A helpful reminder from me in 2009 of Burnadette Norris-Weeks' anti-democratic sensibility: 

And now we read that last week Norris-Weeks was appointed by ethically-challenged Broward County Comm. Dale Holness to the new incarnation of the Broward Charter Review group. 
Why?

What possibly justifies this woman's continual bad judment and curious sense of ethics and propriety from being represented over-and-over on important Broward panels in ways that are genuinely harmful to both Broward citizens and the larger business community?
Why should the public expect anything different from her this time but more of her anti-citizen actions that prevent genuine accountability and oversight, to say nothing of actual improvement in governance?

If you wonder why Broward County is still mired in the state of continual funk it's been in for years, and why no matter where in the county you go, the public (and the news media) consistently is bewildered at what they hear about what's REALLY going on, wonder why the public has so very little trust and respect for Broward's myriad govt. agencies and functions, it's because of the accurate perception that establishment insiders like Norris-Weeks have consistently used her position to give herself unfair, anti-competitive advantages over others.

And the public perception that Norris-Weeks, when on Broward govt. panels, uses that role to further special interests, NOT for the benefit of the majority of Broward taxpayers and Small Business owners, who are very much against crony capitalism and pay-to-play govt., is right in the records for everyone to see.
Once Broward gets around to making it public a year later...

So tell me, why haven't you or I seen a single story yet on Norris-Weeks' multiple episodes of curious behavior and bad judgment on Channel 4, 6, 7 or 10's newscasts? 

Or in the Miami Herald?

Good question.



But first things first...




Clearly, one of the few times that one of the most ardent opponents of ethical reform in Hallandale Beach, Andrew Markoff, was said to be correct.

Some Commissioners Fed Up With Elections Chief
By Buddy Nevins

It was Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes’ turn in the barrel this week.


Snipes got grilled – her word for the 30-minute cross-examination was “bullied” – by Broward County Commissioner Mark Bogen on Tuesday.


Like a prosecutor questioning a murderer, Bogen started out something like this: “Would you agree the most important thing for any supervisor is to run efficient and impartial elections?”


It went downhill from there for Snipes.

The following is an open e-mail Mayor Mike Ryan of Sunrise calling for a policy governing political activity by any Elections Office lawyer.
The background:  Commissioner Mark Bogen last week called for a clear policy governing Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes’ attorney. He did this after discovering that the office lawyer Burnadette Norris-Weeks had actively taken part in campaigns.

Broward Beat
By Buddy Nevins

Burnadette Norris-Weeks — the beleagued Elections Office attorney who is embroiled in a fight over her politicking — obviously hasn’t heard the age-old expression: If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen.
Norris-Weeks has lashed out at Sunrise Mayor Mike Ryan for daring to criticize her actions — campaigning for candidates at the same time she is supposed to be an impartial Broward Elections Office official.

Read the rest of the column at:






Other than the fully-engaged reaction from Sunrise's mayor, I'm unaware of anything by the people who ought to be The Usual Suspects.
Just silence from The Broward League of Women Voters, The Broward Workshop, The Broward Alliance CEO Council, or even the Good Government Initiative at the University of Miami, under former Miami-Dade County Comm. Katy Sorenson, who was long known as the most pro-reform supporter of strong and effective ethics on that ethically-challenged and corrupt group that seems to be on perpetual probation for crimes against taxpayers and common sense.

How much of this is because of business and political connections, large and small, and how much of this is because of race, and the fear of being taken apart publicly for simply saying the facts aloud while the local news media largely averts its eyes for whatever reason?
That latter point is something that Buddy Nevins references above in his June 5th account of Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes appalling performance the past few years and the public criticism of her that has only grown MUCH LOUDER.

Up to a point.

And that point in my opinion is the same one that explains the silence now on Norris-Weeks.
Commissioners won’t say much of this publicly because of politics:Its politically incorrect to attack one of the few black office holders in Broward.Perhaps more important, Democrats – eight of the nine commissioners  — fear they would be alienating their base in the African American and Caribbean American community if they publicly condemn Snipes.
Another aspect of this whole matter that I have written about a lot in recent emails but not yet here on the blog concerns the selection by crony capitalism-loving Broward Comm. Dale Holness of Burnadette Norris-Weeks to the Broward Charter Review panel for the second time in a row: why does #SoFL have so many more unethical and incompetent political and government officials than other areas of the U.S. its size? Especially among African-Americans?

Is it the lack of a large enough pool of educated, Middle Management types who DON'T depend on the public payroll for their personal & professional advancement?

You don't have to be a political junkie or news junkie to realize that #SoFL and #Broward are lacking in the very type of people who in most parts of the country actually make up a good portion of the middle management of well-run companies that actually manufacture tangible consumer and industrial goods, instead of selling the hope of sand, surf and sun to visitors.

Also, how is it that in the year 2015, the Broward Workshop,with all the access to resources and media professionals they have, do NOT have a Twitter feed? 

Seriously.
Their charming and always-helpful Exec. Director, Kareen Boutros, is someone whom I like, after first meeting her at the previous edition of the Broward Charter Review meetings in 2008, but it's time for them to get into the 21st Century.

I'm grew up and was educated in South Florida in the 1970's, but still I continue to be #dumbfounded and #frustrated by what is tolerated and passes for "Normal" around here that would simply NOT be acceptable behavior and conduct in the rest of the U.S. then or now.

Starting this week, Hallandale Beach Blog will be offering reasonably-priced display advertising starting at only $75 a month to help you reach the blog's influential, well-informed and savvy South Florida-based readers and decision-makers

If you don't already see yourself or your company represented here at Hallandale Beach Blog, starting this week, you can make that a reality via reasonably-priced display advertising starting at only $75 a month, and start reaching its influential, well-informed and savvy #SoFL-based decision-makers.
Updated June 30, 2015

Dear Friends, Neighbors and loyal Readers of Hallandale Beach Blog:


I'm writing to let you know that there's a new and cost-effective marketing tool for you to use to attract and retain new customers  and help differentiate your business from its competitors, and it's not only an option that's very reasonably-priced, but also one located close to where you live and work.
Starting this month, Hallandale Beach Blog, my popular and informative eight-year old blog on current events, local/state government, public policy and innovative ideas and trends -and pop culture happenings- will begin running reasonably-priced display advertising, at rates starting at only $75 a month.

Those prominently-displayed ads can help you reach the blog's affluent, 
well-informed and savvy South Florida-based readers and decision-makers. Unlike ads placed in many of South Florida's un-audited community  newspapers or lifestyle websites and magazines that I could name, your ad WILL not just be seen, but actually NOTICED by many of  South Florida's most-informed, engaged and discerning residents and busienss owners, as well as by seasonal residents and out-of-town visitors and investors with a very strong interest in keeping up to-date on what's happening in our slice of South Florida.

Specifically, the blog will soon feature Consumer, Business-to-Business 
and Industry-related advertising, promotion and public awareness campaigns from individuals, firms and companies in South Florida, as well as from those located in other parts of Florida, the U.S. and even overseas.






That is to say, companies who ARE very interested in advertising on my blog because they're savvy enough to recognize the VALUE of reaching the caliber of affluent, well-educated and well-informed readers my blog  consistently attracts in large numbers from South Florida, the Sunshine State, the U.S., as well as other points on the compass. The latter includes my loyal, well-informed and globe-trotting readers in  Great Britain, Canada, Northern Europe and Scandinavia, who continue to enjoy original and compelling content they can't find elsewhere.

Yes, those highly-educated and highly-engaged readers are precisely the sort of people that savvy businesses want as future customers!
So why not you?



For years the countries where Hallandale Beach Blog has been most popular have remained the same, in order: Great Britain, Canada, Germany, Sweden, France and The Netherlands.
In large part not just because of the large number of Americans living and working there, but the large number of English-speakers there who ARE interested in the same subjects that we write about so frequently on this blog that they care about or have come to care about, especially within the worlds of pop culture, film and music, plus European politics.

This change in advertising policy represents a great marketing opportunity for people and companies to promote themselves in a positive way that differentiates them from their competitors, to some of South Florida's most-influential, best-informed and most-engaged consumers and voters. (And gain all those those well-informed and demanding readers elsewhere for FREE.)

Over the past eight years, I'm proud that Hallandale Beach Blog has developed a reputation for fact-based reporting and fair-minded analysis, and for its very discerning online readership. A readership that prefers to be VERY INFORMED before making purchasing decisions about consumer products or services -or political issues. Like me, the readers are quick to share what they know and think with others via Social Media, and love to share information. Especially about their positive customer 
experiences.

I'm happy to say that this blog's readership numbers consistently outperform the vast majority of Florida-based blogs and websites, especially ones not affiliated with newspapers or TV stations. 
According to Google, several days within the past few weeks saw daily readership numbers climb well over 2,500, and June and July are traditionally two of the blog's most-read months, with last June setting a new monthly record with 96,439 pageviews. The total from June 21st-27th was 15,265, an average of 2,180 pageviews a day

While it's hard to generalize about the blog's readership, I'm happy to tell you that it skews towards an advertising and voting sweet spot: well-educated professionals and concerned, home-owning 
parents. People who are VERY civic-minded and who ALWAYS vote -in every election.

Given the often complex and high-minded discussion about public policy that takes place on this blog, it's no surprise that it has a MUCH-HIGHER  
than average percentage of readers with advanced degrees, as well as  first-hand experience in government, or, in dealing directly with elected officials and govt. agencies and public policy on behalf of themselves or other interested parties. That's largely a factor of the blog's readership including such a large percentage of current and former attorneys, university academics, doctors, engineers, educators and elected officials, as well as 
lots of current and retired journalists and creative industry professionals who are always keen to keep me on my toes factually.

There's a very compelling reason for why my blog and growing Twitter feed 
are read and Followed by so many South Florida (and national) print & TV reporters, editors and columnists, as well as its most-popular Social Media personalities and bloggers. Read and Followed by many South Florida 
municipal and County Commissioners and their counterparts in Tallahassee and Washington, D.C. Read and Followed by Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters, as well as reporters at the N.Y. Times and prominent Washington news/political websites like POLITICO and Roll Call, and the publisher of Scandinavia's largest and most innovative newspaper, Aftonbladet.
Read and Followed by prominent Entertainment media publications based in LA, NY and in Europe like VARIETY, as well as high-ranking people and companies deeply entrenched in High Tech, Venture Capital and innovative startups, from Silicon Valley to Manhattan, London and Stockholm.
That reason is the consistency of original content that entertains as well as it educates and informs.

Given those particulars, it's no surprise that the blog's readers are very avid consumers of books, magazines, film and music, AND eat out more often -and travel overseas more frequently- than most South Florida adults.
Besides closely following public policy, current events and politics in both 
the U.S and Europe, the blog's readers also are very interested in following new developments in the worlds of business, technology and advertising/marketing, film, music and pop culture trends, and media criticism. 
And they're VERY focused on following the latest regarding savvy Entrepreneurs, Venture Capital and Startups, in both the U.S. and Europe.

They're consumers who prefer QUALITY, and not afraid to pay for it, whether they're dining out, or purchasing products or services for themselves, their families or their homes, or when when making
decisions about future travel and leisure activities. Like me, they want lots of good options before they choose!

The blog's readership is very engaged and cares more about what's going on in the wider world than most people, but readers care MOST passionately about what's going on -or isn't- in their slice of the
Sunshine State or the world, and the myriad threats to their family's Quality of Life and future prosperity. Those readers have learned over the past eight years that this blog has NOT been afraid to consistently write (and comment) on often-contentious subject matter, and to strive to do so from an
informed, fact-based perspective. Original content that they can't find elsewhere in South Florida -or anywhere else online.

Over those eight years, those same readers have come to rely upon the fact that this blog has become a very reliable, go-to source of information, facts and perspective, not only for them and other
concerned residents of South Florida and the Sunshine State, but also an invaluable tool to Florida's news media, which had often cited the blog in their own coverage of Florida's often-combative nexus of government, politics and public policy.

That's especially been the case on the many occasions when Hallandale Beach Blog has broken news on a public issue before anyone else, or, added important facts to the mix that completely changed the
prevailing media narrative.

For instance, the time we broke the news that Hallandale Beach's elected officials and top city administrators had hatched a secret scheme to use taxpayer funds to pay for someone to regularly appear and lobby on behalf of  the city's position at city, Broward County and community events. Their intent was clear: to sway public opinion and affect future public votes. WITHOUT ever publicly disclosing this fact to the city's residents and business community.
Well, we eventually broke the news on who this person was, how much they were paid, and publicly asked how it was either ethical or legal for the City of Hallandale Beach to hire someone whose main job was to attempt to INTENTIONALLY deceive and mislead taxpayers. 
And to do so WITHOUT registering as a paid lobbyist, as required by both city and County laws.

In 2012, in one of the more improbable stories of the past few years, the South Florida news media acknowledged that it was only thru the hard work and research of the Hallandale Beach Blog that they could report what we exposed -the amazing news that a Hallandale Beach mayoral candidate who was being heavily promoted for office via a series of glowing newspaper columns, was actually being written about by... that candidate's own wife!
Yet another in a long line of egregious examples of someone with either influence or power trying to take advantage of Hallandale Beach-area residents and businesses. 
And the facts and the truth only became known because of the diligent efforts of my blog to serve as an honest platform for honest and fair debate about public policy issues affecting the diverse people and interests of South Florida.

In Hollywood, I've attended nearly every important City Commission and community meeting about public policy over the past eight years: the arduous and frustrating search for a real estate development team that'd build a large destination resort hotel on Johnson Street & A1A at Hollywood Beach that took to heart what the city's residents and leaders wanted (Margaritaville); the creative efforts of famed architect and planner Bernard Zyscovich and his firm to reshape the city's Master Plan to balance exciting retail, mixed-use and residential living in just the right proportion that would
reinvigorate the city; the many controversial fights over real estate development and building heights at historic Young Circle; the two searches for a new City Manager; the fight over a religious Charter
School; the efforts to bring more public accountability to the city's CRA policies and procedures...

(There's a good reason that so many of my photos from public meetings at Hallandale Beach or Hollywood City Hall, and around the two cities, are so frequently among the first ones you see on Google Images when you look up the two cities.) 

I've created a list of categories at the bottom of this email for you to peruse for a minute or two to see whether there's a category that best describes you and your business -or the business or service of a family member or close friend. 
Of course, you're NOT limited to just these categories, they're merely starting points.
I've also posted the size of the ads that I'll feature, and the MONTHLY price to run that particular size ad. 

Most of you will quickly realize that the prices are not just reasonable given the size and caliber of the blog's readership demographic, but also represents a real bargain compared to some of the high prices charged for advertising by certain media outlets in South Florida that give advertisiers no real sense of how many people are ACTUALLY seeing their ad.

All ads featured on the blog can be linked to any website of your choosing, whether your business's current homepage, or any third-party site you currently use for customer service purposes.
And in the biggest change from the past here, ALL ads featured on the blog will be visible by everyone who views the blog, regardless of where they are seen, which guarantees advertisers the widest-possible distribution channels, and creates positive first impressions on many more people than you can currently reach based solely on algorithims based on someone's recent search history and news reading and email habits.

For instance, if you're a South Florida-based business, say a realtor selling residential luxury properties, do you really want the online universe for your advertising for that property to largely be limited geographically or by the number of people who may've recently typed certain words about real estate on their computer?
If you're selling properties in this area of Florida, with an ad here on the blog, in addition to reaching current South Florida residents, your ad also reaches the many, many seasonal residents of our area who are now already back in Ohio, the Northeast U.S., Toronto and Montreal for the summer, who are regularly checking the blog to keep up to date on what's going on here and how it affects them and their families.

Your ad here on the blog will resonate with them because if it matches the geographic location and price points that they already have in mind, they will quickly jump on the opportunity to let you know of their interest. 

Yes, they know from personal experience how VERY competitive the real estate market is here!

For those part-time residents who are gone from South Florida for the summer but who regularly read this blog, all of whom have friends and family members who have talked with them for years about the idea of THEM relocating to South Florida, too, isn't your real estate ad here the one that they will click and tell their friends about to help THEM make that hope reality? 

The reasonably-priced ad that leads to actual SALES
In a word: YES.

If you're selling a quality product or service to people in South Florida and want to reach not just lots of upscale, tech-savvy consumers, but also some of the area's most-influential opinion-makers, make the decision today to begin advertising at the website where people are going in numbers to find out the genuine facts, and get informed, fact-based perspective, too: Hallandale Beach Blog.

I want anyone who makes the wise decision to advertise on this blog to be happy with the decision, so if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact me at hallandalebeachblog@gmail.com

Special thanks to all the friends whom I've reached out to over the past few months about this change re advertising. Your positive feedback and suggestions have really helped me focus like a laser beam.

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

Thumbs up! What a night we had! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is saying something considering what seems like the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
